Video Transcript for Curt Receiver Hitch Extender Review

Randy: Hey guys. It's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at Curt hitch extenders. These are designed for use in a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening and they're going to in an 8, a 14, and an 18 inch length. This is going to be a really good way with obstructions on the back of your vehicle whether it's a Jeep like this with a spare tire, a truck with an in-bed camper or even a UTV hitch that's just buried underneath and hard to get to.This is going to get our pinwheel much further back allowing us to clear any obstructions that we might have their accessories. Here is one of the many situations where a hitch extender is going to come in handy.

As you can see we've got a folding style bike rack back here. We just can't get it in far enough before it makes contact with the tire. So by buying that 8, that 14, or that 18 inch extension it's going to give us the room to get our items in place without any interference.Now something that sets this extender apart from some others you can see and extremely durable, solid shank here goes into the backside of your receiver tube. That's going to give you supreme durability. It's going to be very, very rugged, actually quite heavy.

To secure it we're going to slide it in our receiver tube opening. We want to line up the pin hole in the extender with the pin hole in our hitch. Once that's in place use a standard 5/8th diameter pin to slide through there and get it secured with our clip.Now you can also use anti-rattle devices with this but keep in mind, since it is a solid shank we can't put anything inside we we'll have to use an external type. Now the pin's going to be a standard Class 3 style pin, 5/8th of an inch in diameter. So if you don't already have one of those at home be sure to pick it up.

It's not included with the extender. Now overall this going to be a very heavy-duty extender. It feels heavier than just about any of the other ones that we've dealt with.Now this is a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. That's going to be very compatible with a lot of accessories out here. This would be like what they consider would be like a Class 3 size.

Pin hole here on the side is going to be 5/8th of an inch in diameter and just like a receiver tube opening on a hitch. So any anti-rattle devices and things like that, you won't have any issues getting those in place.Now for ball mount use, I don't know that those are very important. You're going to have a little bit of movement with a ball mount anyway. But putting cargo carriers in here, putting bike racks in here, I would definitely want an anti-rattle there just to keep everything nice and solid. Now here's a pretty good example of what we we're talking about with the movement that we have at our connection between the extender and the hitch.As you can see with this bike rack on here going down the road it'd have quite a bit of play. So we recommend the use of an anti-rattle device here at our connection point so we can limit that and keep everything nice and sturdy. I don't think it's as big of a deal when towing but it's something to keep in mind. Any hitch extender without an anti-rattle device is going to give you that same movement. These extenders also get really good reviews from our customers.It's like Billy said, "I have a Jeep Wrangler with a spare tire on the back. Because of that, I needed this product in order to use a cargo basket so that the basket will clear the spare tire. This product fits the bill and it is very sturdy. Now when using this hitch extender we're going to have the 350 pound tongue weight maximum. That's the most downward force we can put on it. We going to have a 3500 pound gross trailer weight rating so it would be the total weight or our trailer and anything that we load up on it.We also need to check our hitch for it's capacity. Take that down by 50% and use whichever of those numbers are lowest. Also to help ensure that this is going to look good and last for a very long time, Curt's put their black powder coat finish all around everything, giving it a nice clean look.

The weld looks solid, but needs ground down, or the hole drilled in a different location. The weld prevented the holes to line up. I had to go get a grade 5 1/2" bolt to secure it in place, rather than a hitch pin. 612657

Curt’s brand, only the best! USA made, The shaft that goes into the hitch is solid steel not the hollow China crap. I used the hitch extension to make a rear hitch step 12” wide by 38” long for my ford van. I strap my kayaks on top for when we go camping this step just gives me that need height to get them in the kayak saddles before I climb on top to tie them down. I put two kayaks on top so the 38” across comes in handy. With my front hitch I can also put it in the front when I’m working on my van or truck to give me that extra hieght - I’m 6’ and I can’t reach a lot of stuff, even cleaning the windshield. 566597

Works great and reasonably priced. etrailer Customer Service is absolutely the very best. My first shipment arrived missing the hitch extension. Customer Service quickly responded to my communications and shipped a replacement the same day. As you can see from the photo the hitch extender is perfect for my Polaris Ranger and allows me to use my small lawn n yard implements. I highly recommend etrailer. 643282

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Adapters

  • How Much Does Hitch Extender Reduce Tongue Weight Capacity
    The answer is actually pretty simple, because using any type of hitch adapter, including a hitch extender, reduces the capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent, and that includes both the towing capacity and the tongue weight capacity. I am not certain what the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 is, but using the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795 or the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Receivers -18" Long # C45796 will reduce that...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender For 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited To Allow Kuat NV To Clear Spare Tire
    For your Kuat NV # NV22G and your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795. This will allow your bike rack to clear your spare tire when folded up, but you will want to note that using a hitch adapter like this will reduce your hitch's tongue weight capacity by 50 percent.

  • Thule T2 Bike Rack Cant Fold Up and Wobbles when Used in Invisi-Hitch on 2015 Subaru Outback
    So you are using an adapter like # C45013 on the Invisi-Hitch installed on your 2015 Subaru Outback. The connection between the hitch and adapter is where you would need the anti-rattle device, right? Since the adapter shank is solid the pest solution is the Boone anti-rattle device # 93347. Given the vertical receiver on the hitch it may be difficult to get this device in place. The absolute best solution is to replace the hitch which may seem like an unnecessary expense until you consider...

  • Hitch Extender For 7,000 Lb Trailer Towed By Motor Home
    The Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long part # C45795 is designed for 2" hitches and a maximum trailer weight of 3,500 lbs so it would not be a good fit for your 7,000 lb trailer. We do not have a good option for an extender to tow a 7,000 lb trailer because extenders do cut the tongue weight of the hitch on your vehicle in half. A better option is to use an extra long ball mount like Ball Mount 3/4" Rise or 2" Drop, Extra Long part # D-26 which measures 12-5/8" long...

  • How to Determine Correct Hitch Extender for Bike Rack on Jeep Wrangler with Rear Spare Tire
    To determine the length you need measure from the hitch pin hole on your Jeep's trailer hitch receiver out to the edge of the spare tire. Then add an inch or so to give you a little space. Some extenders are only designed to be used to flat tow a vehicle and not to hold any tongue weight so make sure you choose an extender that is designed for carrying accessories since you're going to use it for a bike rack. Part # C45795 is a great 14 inch option. 37 inch tires are normally 12 or...

  • Hitch Extender Availability To Allow Folding Carrier to Fold Up
    The shortest hitch extender we offer is the part # C45791 which will give you an additional 8 inches of extension. Without knowing more details about your setup it's hard to say for sure if that would give you enough clearance but I would be wiling to be it is if what you have now almost would fold up. You should note that when you use an extension like this you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch it is used on in half. To prevent movement of this extension in the hitch you would...

  • Should Anti-Rattle Device be Used on Hitch Extension and Spare Wheel/Tire Carrier
    Using an anti rattle device on both the extension part # C45795 and the spare carrier part # C31006 would be ideal as you'd have quite a bit of movement without doing so. Between the extension and the carrier you can use the part # 63232 since the carrier has a hollow shank. Then since the extension has a solid shank you'd need to use a U-bolt style anti-rattle like the part # RM-061 and you'd be set. The # 63232 doubles as a hitch lock so for a standard hitch pin lock for the extension...

  • Why Do Hitch Extenders Reduce Hitch Capacity
    Hitch extenders like the Kuat # HL20B and similar items # C45791, # C45795 and # HE12 do give you more clearance to install a hitch accessory like the SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack # SR2415 but the trouble is these extenders also reduce the hitch's tongue weight (TW) capacity by 50-percent. All adapters like these push the actual weight of the loaded bike rack further away from the hitch and this means the rack's weight will put more stress on the hitch. The extra connection point...

  • Hitch Extender For Adding Enough Space Between Trailer and SUV to Open Rear Hatch
    You can do that if you wish, but be aware that using an extension lowers the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The further the load gets extended away from the hitch, the more leverage is applied. This leverage can damage the hitch or cause it or its attachment points to the vehicle to fail. If you can get by with the reduced capacity, I'd recommend the 12 inch # MT70024, the 14 inch # C45795 or the 18 inch # HE18. An extra long ball mount might be a good alternative. If you click...

  • Compatibility of Hitch Extender with Adjustable Ball Mount with a Rise
    A ball mount like the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls # LTB4-2 will allow you to use the hitch ball rise position with the extender unless there is a noted restriction on your extension. Most extenders do not have that restriction. For instance, the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795 has restrictions of a maximum tongue weight of 350 lbs and maximum towing of 3,500 lbs. You will also want to recognize that the use of an extension will reduce...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2007 Ford E-450 Chassis on Old U-Haul Truck
    Since the frame ends so far short of the bumper, I recommend the Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Receiver - Weld On - Class V - 2" # 41990-07. Then you will need to use a hitch extender like # C45795 which will reduce your overall towing capacity to 3,500 lbs and 350 lbs tongue weight but you will still be able to tow any trailer within that range.
